PostSubject: PH Crash............   Sat Mar 13, 2010 3:31 pm

Right just a pre-warning to anybody starting out or currently setup....

I changed my tank bottom from having gravel to having a clear bottom in my grow out tank...

The reason for this was to keep maintenance down with crap......

I left 2 small filters in there with a small Piece of Bogwood....

I had around 80 small bn's between 1-3 cm's..........

I checked the nitrite's on a regular basis but here comes the dumb part and somtimes take it for granted.....
I was getting 1 or 2 small bn's dying every day??

I checked the Nitrites and they were perfect, i checked the PH today and wham 4.5......... Shocked No

Due to removing everything but bogwood the PH dropped fast and badly.........
Lets just say its took me about 3 hours today to fix the problem and all is healthy now.....

but be warned if you want a clear bottom make sure you put furniture in there that will increase your PH such as Coral Rock e.t.c....

So you see even I can be a daft git now and again.......

Check your PH every time you check your Nitrite's............... Twisted Evil

"It's all a learning curve" , you got that right mate.
A bit of a bugger with the losses but I think you'll recover from that the way your trio produces eggs.
Good tip about the shell in the tights deano Good Job
cheers J
